ANTIQUE MAP: SURREY.

HALL, Selina, fl.1831-1853 : SURREY.

London : Chapman & Hall, [1833?]. A separately published version of the Hall map originally issued in November 1831 with the John Gorton part-work "A Topographical Dictionary of Great Britain and Ireland". All the maps in this series are generally credited to Sidney Hall (1788?-1831), but maps towards the end of the series were in fact prepared and engraved after Hall’s death (in February 1831) by his widow and successor, Selina Hall – who silently continued the business for upwards of twenty years under the quasi-pseudonymous style of "S. Hall" – the maps continuing to be credited to her late husband.
Line engraving on paper. Original outline hand colour. Engraved surface 195 x 245mm (approx. 7-3/4” x 9-3/4”). Dissected, mounted on linen, and folding into the publishers’ original cloth case. As is usual with this issue of the maps, the original 1831 date has been erased by the publishers by hand. In very good state indeed for an ephemeral item of this type. A guaranteed genuine antique map.
